Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford has revealed players at the club believe in the process of manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær while also labelling the Europa League final loss on Wednesday to Villarreal in Gdansk, Poland, as a disappointment.
The England star failed to find the back of the net in normal and extra time though did score during the penalty shootout which ended 11-10 in Villarreal’s favour after United goalkeeper David De Gea watched his effort get saved by his Villarreal counterpart, Gerónimo Rulli.
“When Ole [Gunnar Solskjær] came in there was a process. And, the players, we believe in this process. And this isn’t the end of the process. Part of the process is having ups and having downs,” Rashford said at the end of the match.
He also said the loss was “a disappointment. In one word, it’s disappointing. At the end of the day we came here to win. We’ve been working so hard and this was an opportunity to win a trophy and it didn’t happen for whatever reasons.”
Rashford went on to state that there is no chance the team and manager, whom fans have called on the club to sack in the wake of the loss, will give up. Rather, they would come back with a stronger desire to win next season.
